The Sacramento Kings rebounded from a brutal first quarter on Wednesday night to come back and blow out the Los Angeles Lakers in L.A.

Now, the team is back at home for the second night of a back-to-back against the San Antonio Spurs, who will be missing a key piece of their rotation. 

Rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama is listed as out for this game with an ankle sprain, which could be a good sign for the Kings picking up another big win on Thursday. 

I’m looking to the prop market for a couple of plays in this matchup, and I think there is plenty of value to be found on both sides due to Wemby’s absence.

Let’s dive into the picks for this Western Conference battle: 

Spurs vs. Kings best NBA prop bets 

  • Domantas Sabonis to record a triple-double
  • Devin Vassell UNDER 34.5 points, rebounds and assists

Domantas Sabonis to record a triple-double

After three straight games without a triple-double, Domantas Sabonis added to his league lead in that category with a massive game against Los Angeles.

The Kings big man had 16 points, 20 rebounds, and 12 assists, showing that he’s an assist threat when De’Aaron Fox is healthy and in action. 

If Fox suits up on the second night of a back-to-back, I love taking Sabonis to get another triple-double at near 2/1 odds against the Spurs. 

In the last meeting between these teams, Sabonis had 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists, and now the Spurs lack the rim protection they usually have down low with Wemby anchoring the defense. 

That could make for some easy buckets for Sabonis, and some easy looks at the rim for his teammates. 

Sabonis is 2-for-2 on triple-doubles against the Spurs this season, so why not take him again on Thursday night?

Devin Vassell UNDER 34.5 points, rebounds and assists

Wembanyama isn’t playing tonight, but I think oddsmakers have gone too far with Devin Vassell’s points, rebounds, and assists prop. 

The Spurs wing should see some more usage on offense, but he’s cleared this number just eight times in 57 games all season long. 

But what are his stats when Wemby sits? The answer: Not good. 

In six games without the rookie sensation in the lineup, Vassell is averaging just 14.0 points, 3.7 assists, and 2.5 rebounds per game. He’s failed to clear this prop in all six of those contests. 

The Spurs could be in danger of getting blown out without their best player, and that would certainly kill Vassell’s chances of hitting this prop. While he has been scoring the ball well as of late (21.8 points per game over his last 23 games), I think he could struggle a little with all the defensive attention turning to him on Thursday.
